Ok … so it’s been a few days since my last post and I’m not sure when I’ll get time to sit and do a longer one… but I wanted to share a couple of pictures that Linh from LiMa Sews sent me of my quilted Swoon quilt.
Her husband (the Ma part of LiMa) took the pictures and I’m so glad I have them for my files. They really show off the quilt pattern.
I LOVE it! The baptist fan pattern was a great choice and I’m so glad I took Linh’s advice on the selection. Since I had it done, I have seen a lot of other quilts in blogland done in the pattern. I’m finally in the midst of a popular trend instead of 2 years behind one!
Here’s a close up:
I am binding the quilt in one of the dark navy prints from the collection:
My plan is to bind it this weekend and give it to my friend on Monday. Wish I had time now, but I have to close the books on July and that is taking up my spare time right now. I might be able to get to it Thursday, but we’ll see.
Some sad news though… one of my little tuxedo kittens passed away this week. Unexpectedly. She seemed to be losing weight recently, and was really looking pitiful this past weekend, but before I could arrange a Dr. appointment – the kids found her ‘frozen’ in the living room Monday night. She had a good appetite, so I’m not sure what happened. I feel really awful about it. The picture below is from Aug 4th, and she looks pretty good here.
Rest in peace Posy. We loved you for a short time and will keep you in our hearts forever.
Good night all,
